The Blue Room Theatre is now welcoming applications for Summer Nights, our hand-crafted program of theatre, dance and performance which takes place as part of the biggest annual arts festival in Western Australia – FRINGE WORLD. In 2017, the festival will run from 20 January – 19 February.

Summer Nights is an initiative of The Blue Room Theatre that presents high-quality, diverse and contemporary live events. In 2016 we welcomed over 11,000 audience members through our doors, achieved 86% attendance and won our fifth consecutive FRINGE WORLD Best Independent Program award. We were also proud that events presented as part of Summer Nights received nine other FRINGE WORLD awards, including the prestigious Martin Sims Award (The Great Ridolphi), Best Dance (Awkward Con-nections), Best Children’s Event (The Road That Wasn’t There) and the Melbourne Fringe Tour Ready Award (Girl in the Wood).

We are excited to announce that for the first time in 2017 we will be collaborating with State Theatre Centre of Western Australia. For two and a half weeks we will be taking up residence in the beautiful 230-seat Studio Underground to present world-class performances for the audiences of Perth and provide artists access to this wonderful space.

We invite local, national and international artists to fill our venues with work that pushes the envelope and redefines performance. We welcome shows that are experimental, emerging and challenging; as well as shows that are established audience pleasers. The stage is set and we can’t wait for you to show us what you can do with it.
